Reports came out last week that to Chinese survey ships has already left and was replaced with another one.


Asked if there is a need to send a Philippine Navy vessel ship in tha area, the PN chief said it’s the call of the operational commander which has jurisdiction over the area.

“That is the operational commander’s call, you have to base it on the availability of vessels, the current disposition of vessels or aircraft, and their present mission also,” Bacordo said.
